Coronavirus Response

Peru State College is dedicated to the health and safety of its students, faculty, staff and visitors.

Peru State College is reporting data weekly to keep our campus and community informed about the positivity rate for employees and students, the number of active cases, and the number of non-active cases.

Active Cases*
7 students
1 faculty/staff
Non-Active Cases
52 students
5 faculty/staff
Total
59 total students
6 total faculty/staff

2.1% total positivity rate (includes faculty, staff and students).

*Active Cases are updated subsequent to campus notice. Active Cases are the number of students, faculty or staff who have tested positive, but have not yet cleared the recovery protocols identified in CDC guidance.

The Total Positivity Rate is the total number of positives (for faculty, staff and students) out of the total tests taken. This number does include positive tests from off-campus testing.

Regular testing continues to be an important strategy as high testing numbers continue to catch both symptomatic and asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic cases. By responding quickly and placing these individuals in isolation, the spread of COVID-19 is significantly reduced.

Peru State College is committed to ongoing testing of students, faculty and staff for COVID-19, including a majority tested each week. The Center for Disease Control reports that a substantial percent of patients are asymptomatic. Consequently, testing the campus population is the best way to maintain a healthy campus and to continue our mission for an engaging, personalized education.
The College has created and gathered the following resources to help better communicate during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
